Loose wires behind VIC

I'm assuming they're just for an option that I don't have, but figured I'd post a pic just to be sure. My VIC doesn't work so I thought I'd check the solder joints before I pitch and cubby the hole.

There's two loose wires behind the vic because depending on which t-case you had determines which two wires they connected together and which two they left disconnected.

hes right, but the wires you are showing arent the wires for the 4wd indicators. almost looks like those are spliced into the cigarette lighter or the power plug?

Not sure. Both outlets work and the VIC plug looks fine. My VIC is dead so time for a cubby.

I believe it's a niner option. It's what makes them so fast.

The VIC on my '97 Orvis worked as it should. It was kinda nice knowing that I was about to run out of washer fluid before I actually did, and little stuff like that. But, could always use more storage.

Maybe that's why my 5.2 didn't want to start when I had the console out last. It missed the cup holder insert

That's funny, I have a black wire with a slide on connector, I figured it was to a light for the ashtray? Somebody removed the ashtray at some point though, lol. Wow, I need to search on the cubby mod, sounds interesting!
